Welcome to Walker Community!

Located in the Bradshaw Mountains, south of Prescott, AZ, Walker Community is an old mining district, filled with history. It’s named after Joseph Walker, mountain man, explorer, and guide. He led a party to this valley to discover gold in the summer of 1863.

Today, the valley is filled with rustic cabins and elegant homes. There’s a vibrant community of people here, with an active social calendar. Some live here full-time, while others have second homes here.

Everyone loves it here.

Fire Fighter Appreciation Day Wrap-Up

Johnny O says:

We had a great turn out at this years firefighter appreciation day.

Thanks to the more than 200 people that showed up to honor the men and women that keep our community safe.

Almost 1/2 of our roster of firefighters, (15), showed up to receive the thanks from a grateful community.

Fire chief, Roger, introduced the troops and reiterated the importance of having a generous community backing the department.

It was a beautiful day. We had a just few sprinkles just before the celebration began. Then clear skies…until the fire trucks were all tucked back in for the night […]

Shocking Video of Rain, Thunder, and Lightening on 9/1/19

After the Firefighters Appreciation dinner, we had a storm blow through Walker, taking out the power for about 20 minutes. The lightening hit at about 7:18pm and the power went out immediately. It was restored at 7:41pm.

The lightening continued for at least another hour.

First 15 seconds of the video are the lightening flash and thunder that took out the power for the whole Walker area. Turn up the volume.

The last 45 seconds are multiple clips edited together and slowed way down to show the weird formations the lightening took. I’ve never seen lightening look like this.

Firefighter Appreciation day! 4-6 pm

Email from Johnny O:

HEY-HEY-HEY…… It’s firefighter appreciation day! 4-6 pm.

I hope everyone is planning to attend today’s firefighter appreciation day/pig roast.
It looks like yet another BEAUTIFUL day here in Walker, so come and enjoy with family and friends and help thank our volunteer firefighters.

I am expecting to be a little short handed on set-up and clean-up. I can use a few extra hands from 12-2 to help with decorations.
Afterwords, I know I will need help cleaning all the kitchen gadgets/pot/pans and hauling trash to the dumpsters…etc.
Many hands make this a quick, painless task. Some of the […]

Fire Fighter Appreciation Day – This Sunday

Email from WFPA:

Hey Folks,

We are just around the corner from our annual fire fighter appreciation day/pig roast. This years date is Sunday, September 1 from 4-6pm.

Here’s a great way to thank your hard working volunteer fire fighters, past and present, while packing in a year supply of cholesterol.

The WFPA will smoke the pig, simmer some beans, offer light refreshments and a few big cakes. The rest is up to you…pot luck style.

Please bring one of grandma’s favorite recipes as a side dish. We
historically have run out of side dishes before the line runs through.

This year I would […]
